Don't understand why my delete method isn't working.

Don't understand why my delete method isn't working.

This is what I have: show.erb <form method="post" action= "/<%=@mediums.name%>"> <input name="_method" type="hidden" value="delete"> <input type="submit" value="Delete name"> </form>


class Test < Sinatra::Base

delete ("/@mediums.name") do @mediums.name = Mediums.find(params[:id]) @mediums.destroy redirect "/names" end
